'Bogong' is a character filled freestanding chalet, a romantic and stylish abode, perfect for a destination to escape the 'ordinary' world. Exposed timber beams and timber lined ceilings, quaint dormer windows, a huge stone open fireplace all combine to create that perfect ambience so rarely found in the everyday world. It was designed by renowned architect Professor Peter McIntyre in 1986 when the original village of Dinner Plain was just beginning.
'Bogong' is on two levels; downstairs is the kitchen, pantry, north facing outdoor deck, living room, boot room, separate toilet, drying cupboard and bathroom. Up the carpeted staircase are two well appointed bedrooms each with a queen sized bed. The second bedroom also has a single loft bed which is reached by a ladder. However, this loft is not suitable for little children due to its height and steep access. Bogong is heated downstairs by a large open fire in the living room and is supported by a gas heater. All other areas have electric panel heaters to keep them warm and cosy.
'Bogong' is strictly No Smoking.
'Bogong' is a small chalet and can only comfortably accommodate a maximum of 4 guests.
If you are looking to escape with someone special then 'Bogong' is an artistic and charming place to call 'home'.
Our little chalet is situated right in the heart of Dinner Plain Village and is within very close proximity to restaurants, bars, boutique shops, cafe, ski hire, day spa, hairdresser and small supermarket and the hub of village life.
No car is necessary once you park in our driveway; walking tracks surround the village and the beginner ski slope, toboggan run and snow fields are less than a five minute walk away.
A shuttle bus connects Dinner Plain to the ski slopes of Mt Hotham and we are very close to the pick up/drop off point.
Dinner Plain Village is surrounded by a multitude of easily accessible walking tracks; the natural beauty of its surrounds is breathtaking. Whether you enjoy a day on the slopes of nearby Mt Hotham or a relaxed day in the village of Dinner Plain 'Bogong' is a perfect destination.
